We Do Things A Little Differently: A Touch Of Empathy & Magic

In a year full of we all still found community in transformational opportunities together.

It’s mind-boggling; 2020 was both the longest yet shortest year I have experienced in my life.  In three-quarters of a year, we all experienced, without filter, a raw shift in society.  In December 2019, I knew 2020 would be a vision year, but I’m sure a pandemic wasn’t what anyone had in their sights.  However, I am grateful that TBB was fortunate to be able to pivot in the way we did back in late-March.  I am also grateful for all the households, businesses, foundations, and individuals who donated during the Ripples of Hope Fundraising Campaign.

Now for the main event!

It was a pleasure being a part of this different way of fundraising.  Here’s the moment we’ve all been waiting for: Seeing Paul Birkey, Founder of TBB, in a unicorn onesie.  Despite his recent leg injury, Paul was eager to be a part of this magical journey; because of you, TBB raised $54,751 and a lucky penny!  So as promised, take a peek at this footage:

Thank you!

2020 was a lot of things, and that’s for sure, but here we are, embracing the magic in empathy. I’m not sure what 2021 has in store, but I am hopeful for wonderfully magical things.  On behalf of everyone within the community of Tacoma Boat Builders, thank you for your generous support.
